June Brown Bag/Local Lore: “Unvarnished: Housing Discrimination in the Northern and Western United States”
One of the four main themes in the Arts in Action project is exclusion. Local documents reflect racially restrictive covenants in both housing property and in cemeteries. Join Naper Settlement’s Dr. Andrea Field and Donna Sack as they discuss “Unvarnished: Housing Discrimination in the Northern and Western United States,” a multi-organization national project during the June Brown Bag/Local Lore program.
“Unvarnished,” examines the history of residential segregation in America by spotlighting six communities from California to Connecticut and placing their histories within a national context. This program is made possible by a generous grant from the DeKalb County Community Mental Health Board.
The program will be at the Ellwood House Museum’s Visitor Center, 420 Linden Place in DeKalb. The program will be offered as a hybrid, and registration is encouraged.
